The genetic and clinical relevance of neuroinflammation in ALS.

Our vision is to direct a translational research integrating a clinical research, at the ALS center of Gui-de-Chauliac and genetic insights, at the genetic department of the Nîmes hospital.

Motoneuron 4


Clinical prospective studies with molecular diagnosis, association studies of single nucleotide polymorphisms as well as the forthcoming introduction of Next Generation Sequencing to conduct large-scale genetic studies provide us the means to evaluate the human relevance of our fundamental research.
